I make paintings, drawings and comics. The work comes from a want to make an image out of the experience of living; amongst the loaded hold of narrative and language, and the gaps where the unnamable exists. I approach this through playing with imagery of representation, that derives from my experience of the place I live. Now London. Processing a view from my commute and the city characters.
